Battlefield V’s Battle Royale Player Count is Much Lower Than 100

With Battle Royale being all the rage these days, it makes sense that EA and DICE would try to take a slice of that sweet, money-making pie. And they will, eventually, with Battlefield V’s own spin on the genre with a new game mode called Firestorm.

It’s your standard Battle Royale, though it won’t quite meet the same standards set by those that came before it. Speaking with VG247, DICE’s Ryan MacArthur stated that the studio is targeting 64 players per-match – much lower than the 100 found in PUBG and Fortnite. Heck, even Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 comes closer to 100, though at a cost of performance.

MacArthur went on to say that “one of the key things is that it needs to feel like it’s Battlefield.” 64 players would make it feel just like, well, regular Battlefield, but as a free-for-all with an ever-encroaching storm of fire.

Battlefield V is set to release on PS4 this November 20th. The Battle Royale mode, Firestorm, won’t be releasing at launch, but will be releasing as a free update next year.
